Well, today, I tackled that problem with three main ingredients.
1. quinoa pasta
3. nutritional yeast.
See where this is going?
1. 1/4 box Quinoa Pasta
2. 1/4 cup Polenta (corn grits)
3. 1/4 cup Nutritional Yeast
6. optional seasoning
-boil the pasta (or any other pasta) as directions, but slightly slightly undercooked (should still be edible at this point if needed, but could be a bit more cooked)
-put the pasta to the side
-boil 1 cup of water, add the 1/4 cup of Polenta
-lower heat and stir occasionally for 4 minutes
-at this point the Polenta should be mostly together, but not quite.
-add the 1/4 cup of nutritional yeast, stir for 45 seconds-1 minute
-add seasoning, salt, pepper, and cooked pasta
-stir everything together in the pot for about 1 minute
-remove from stove, spoon into a bowl and let sit for 2-4 minutes*
*You could also probably bake this, although I didn't since I was hungry!
